Random Quickies: Thunderpaw

20130214-171608.jpg

As a relative newcomer to Tumblr, I have only lately come to a surprising realization: animated gifs are everywhere. Like, on every single blog that has “F*** Yeah” as the title. They are back in a bigger way than when that dancing CGI baby was all the rage. (Readers under 20, please disregard this horribly dated reference.) I’ve also noticed that seeing a bunch of animated gifs in a row, usually recapping a segment on TV, is not unlike reading a comic.

So it should come no surprise that there are some webcomics out there following suit. Jen’s Thunderpaw follows two anthropomorphic friends, Bruno and Ollie, as they go on a journey that seems to fracture their very mental state. During the comic, looped animated panels make everything jittery and haunting. I can’t say Thunderpaw makes sense, exactly, but it’s long on environment and is pretty to look at.

About El Santo

Somehow ended up reading and reviewing almost 300 different webcomics. Life is funny, huh? Despite owning two masks, is not actually a luchador.

  1. Just read what’s been posted so far. Really love the limited color palette. I have mixed feelings about the gifs though. The newer pages, where there are only 1 or 2 gif panels per page, work better in my opinion. The earlier pages, where most of the panels were moving gifs, were really distracting and didn’t “flow” well. I’m very interested to see where this comic goes though.

  2. It’s great that you like it! Considering that this is just the first chapter I think the story can go to some interesting places. I agree that the best thing is the atmosphere.
